The 2017 Honda Odyssey is looking towards the Honda CR-V and Honda Pilot for its inspiration. This may mean that when the vehicle arrives it may have support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, just as the Honda Pilot and Honda CR-V did.
Honda spoke up about Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and said that they would be made available in vehicles that have the EX and above trims. We cannot see any reason why the 2017 Honda Odyssey shouldn’t follow on the same way. The technology means that owners can use some of the functions of their phone whilst driving. For instance they can get access to Google Maps, use the device to send a text hands free or make a call and they can listen to music on the handset.
Honda gave the Honda CR-V an interior that was more upmarket as they gave the higher end models premium trim parts. They may also do the same with the cabin of the 2017 Honda Odyssey.
There are some owners who complained about Honda vehicles not having the physical volume knob and Honda has done something about this and reintroduced it. This too may make its way onto the 2017 Honda Odyssey if it takes inspiration from the Honda CR-V and Pilot.
